substantiate their claims but take a look for yourself. the surveillance tape shows zimmerman walking into the sanford police department. he's heading in for questioning. he claimed the 17-year-old broke his nose, slams his head on to the pavement but it's obvious you can see that zimmerman has no visible injuries the night of the shooting. trayvon martin's mother reacted after watching the video and says it discredits zimmerman's claims he acted in self- defense. here's what else she had to say. >> i believe that george zimmerman hunted my son like an animal, tried to detain my son, my son tried to get away and because he could not detain my son, an altercation ensued and my son was shot and killed. >> we are also hearing from the attorneys general in virginia and maryland. >> believe it or not, they both agreed on this issue. they stopped by the studios
last night. they did say one we shouldn't jump and rush to judgment on this case. still a lot of investigation and we weren't on the ground so we don't know what exactly happened that night. still, lots of questions but they do say it raises some very important issues that should be discussed nationwide about the justice system. here's what they had to say. >> i think there's certainly a positive outcome from this whole discussion. which is should we have these stand your ground rules and should we be talking about racism in our justice system and does that exist? and it obviously does. the dialogue i think is a healthy one but to jump to conclusions about what happened that night is premature at this point. >> i would tend to agree with what doug has said. i think contrary to what seems to be the focus is the stand your ground law there in florida doesn't seem to be implicated by someone like george zimmerman who first
pursued trayvon martin. >> reporter: the stand your ground law is at the root of the whole case and we know that by listening to george zimmerman's call to the police, they told him to stop following trayvon and he continued to pursue him and eventually had the altercation where he shot and killed him. >> it would be interesting to compare the 91 call of zimmerman with the cell phone call that trayvon martin was apparently with a friend or girlfriend of his. to hear how each side of it goes and we haven't heard that as we just watched the case uniformed so far. >> right, bits and pieces are being revealed at this point and we don't know what happened that night. investigators, the u.s. justice department opened up the investigation. they are now looking into whether or not searchman calls for help. you can hear someone screaming for help behind one of the 911 calls, was it zimmerman or trayvon martin? still lots of questions. >> an free yay? the hoodie has become a symbol used in the trayvon martin case. the youngster was wearing one
when he was killed and symbol was taken up yesterday by congressman bobby rush, a democrat from illinois. >> just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum. >> congressman rush called this an act of civil disobedience. he was quickly reprimanded for violating the house rules and was escorted from the chamber. director spike lee is apologizing to florida couple. he was one of many people to tweet out the address of elaine and david mclane. he did it because he thought the home was where george zimmerman lived. but it wasn't. the sanford, florida police are keeping an eye on the mclane's home to ensure their safety. lee didn't send out the original message with the address but he retweeted it to his 200,000 followers. the question is what was he trying to do? we'll have to wait until june to learn the outcome of the health care reform case before the supreme court. the court held three days of
arguments on president obama's law. the issue wednesday, if the requirement that all americans must buy insurance is struck down does that mean the entire law has to go? the white house is betting on the law being ruled constitutional. >> there's no con sin teenage plan that's in place. we're focused on implementing the law and we are confident that the law is constitutional. >> i think even if the court did nothing more than strike down the individual mandate. it would be a very significant victory and be a landmark decision of the supreme court. >> court watchers believe the outcome will come down to the votes of roberts and kennedy. they asked very pointed questions of lawyers supporting the law during the arguments. teachers in frederick county, maryland are getting ready to work to the rules. starting tomorrow, they say once they're off the clock, they're not going to grade paper, meet with students or plan lessons and no school work during lunch they say. teachers are upset with a budget plan which includes
possible furloughs and canceling the cost of living adjustments to their paychecks. 6:36, jessica doyle is watching your money and your happens. >> despite unemployment issues there are really people who really, really hate their jobs. >> yeah, for the folks who are consistently unhappy at work or maybe their colleagues are consistently unhappy at work it may not be them. it may be the job. there's a new survey out ranking the unhappiest jobs in america. and coming in at number one, security officer. the unhappiest job. you can blame late hours and loneliness being factors here. number two, registered nurse. number three teacher. low pay and few growth opportunities were cited there. if you're hoping to smile more at work also stay away from managerial jobs like product manager and marketing manager. the survey was conducted by online career site careerbliss.com. hungry for delivery but
hate the phone? living social is launching a new business today. it's an online takeout and delivery service called takeout and delivery. that makes sense right? >> really? >> this is similar to existing food delivery sites like seamless.com. demand for the sites of operations is growing as people conduct more of their lives online or on the smart phones. and speaking of the food business investors gobbled up shares of organic food company annie's yesterday. it enjoyed the biggest opening day gain for an initial public offering all year. the stock soared 89% on its first day of trades. closing at just about $36 a share. best known for its organic mac and cheese. we've got that at home. annie's now makes 125 organic and natural food products, i have the mac and cheese, i love it and my kid hates it. >> husband and wife -- it's a neat story. really cool. thanks jess.
our time 16:38 and nine minutes how you can enjoy some of d.c.'s top chefs while helping children in need all at the same time. >> and howard says it's going to be sunny today a bit breezy today. highs in the mid 60s, straight ahead he gives us a look to the weekend too. >> but first get ready to walk this way, aerosmith is going back on tour. it's released the dates for its global warming tour and the band will be at jiffy lube law in bristow, virginia tuesday july3rd. ♪
